Taking Submissions: You Meet in a Tavern

Deadline: July 1st, 2024
Payment: $10
Theme: Romantic fantasy that takes place in a tavern

Spring Submissions Open March 21, 2024
Theme: “You Meet in a Tavern”

One of the most well known tropes in table top roleplaying games like Dungeons & Dragons is beginning an adventure by meeting in a tavern. Taverns are a quintessential element to many fantasy stories as meeting places for not only fantasy adventures but also romance (only one bed tropes often go hand in hand with the tavern location). Give us your best Romantasy story set in the beloved tavern location!

Anthology Payment:

We offer $10 payment upon acceptance, a digital copy of the book, and authors can purchase physical copies of the book at wholesale price.
Payments will grow as we do.
